WRITER

Alongside my directing, I am also a writer and spoken word poet. I am a Genesis Poetry Slam winner and have performed for various events and venues, including Spoken Word London, Extra Second London, Homos & Houmous in Kings Cross, and Word of Mouth and Watch Your Mouth in Leeds. I have also taught workshops on writing and performing spoken word for social justice movements to youth groups in Leeds and at Limmud Conference in Birmingham.

I write mostly on themes of feminism, mental health and identity. Some of my work may be found here: https://pursuedbybears.wordpress.com/category/poetry/
